Margaret Leng Tan, toy piano & piano. Ms. Tan plays the Schoenhut toy piano.
According to Tan:
Composer/vocalist Toby Twining's music and voice can be heard on his CD Shaman, featuring his vocal quartet, Toby Twining Music. Twining had made an earlier vocal arrangement of Satie Blues for his group. The version for toy piano and piano is probably the first-ever composition featuring this unique blend of instruments. Nightmare Rag is a delightfully hilarious slice of modern-day Americana laced with sly allusions to The Addams Family.
